Yesterday i went from Bilbao to Castro Urdiales. I visited the castle on the hill made a walk along the sea and then went by bus to Santander. There I was only short time and went to Torrelavega. I had two hours to my next bus, so I went around the town and had very good lunch = menu del dia or 11 euro - Cuban rice with two eggs, delicious tuna with potatoes and salad, water, pudding for dessert and tea. Not so expensive. And very big portion, Then there was a nice surprise that the bus went to museum of Altamira. I joined the guided tour to the cave - marvelous (it is the copy of the original cave, but made stunning well). After the visit in the museum 2 km walk to my hostel in Santillana del Mar. And the days are long now so I could make a walk around Santillana -beautiful medieval village, well preserved.

Today teh way back - first to Torrelavega, then after a few minutes to SAntander. In Santander two hours were enough to visit the most important places and to have breakfast - Spanish tortilla with bread and tea for just 2 euro, Spain is really nice after Switzerland . From SAntander to Zaragoza siz hours by bus. I went to my hostel, left the backpack and went with tripod and camera to see the Basilica del Pilar. Do this was the end of the busy day.

For Ryszard - the fountain is closed for renovation.

Hi Malgo,

Wspaniale wieczorne zdjecie, upiekszone jeszcze bardziej przez odbicia w wodzie.

Milego weekendu

Good morning Malgo,
A fabulous warm tones illuminations, well collected on a street view from its corner POV. That position taken allow a nice part of the imposing building shown on the mirror upon the pond.
Marvelous outcome, immaculate clarity.
Have a nice weekend,

Hello Malgo,

I like the colours and enlightenment of the building.
Also the reflections make your picture fantastic.
A very splendid picture.
Composition and panorama view, becomes nice presented.
Very well done, TFS.

Have a nice weekend,

Bonjour, chère Malgo,
C'est la mer rouge quand il saigne (tirade du nez d'Edmond Rostand). Superbe composition où les détails sont magnifiquement mis en valeur. Quant à la couleur, une réussite totale.

Dear Malgo,

Very good utilization of the reflective surface in the fg. The colours and lights are also good. Overall, it is a good nocturne.

Best Wishes,

Hello Malgo,
How could you be tired after two such lazy days, hardly doing anything at all? ;-)
This is anyway a nice photo of the basilica, well illuminated under the darkening sky and nicely reflected in the pool.
Thanks for your critique of my Sarajevo photo. I know you and others wanted a photo of the entire mosque, but it was a crowded area and not easy to find a good angle. Please look at the link I sent to Craig.
Kind regards,

Hello Malgo,
My, what a busy time you have had and all in the name of photography! I stayed in Zaragoza for two weeks on business getting on for thirty years ago; a very pleasant town with this magnificent cathedral. In fact we are going to the South of Spain at the beginning of May and will be staying in Zaragoza one night on the way back. In the meantime we have a short stay booked in Rennes at the end of this month. Enough about me, this is an excellent blue hour composition. Perfectly exposed with superb colours and clarity. Thanks for sharing, have a great weekend in sunny Spain.

Hello Maalgo ,
Wow ! Fantastic evening capture of the amazing cathedral , with gorgeous warm tonalities and superb reflections .

Ciao Malgo,

Très belle composition à l'heure bleue sur une ville que j'apprends à connaître grâce à tes photos. Superbe ligne de fuite qui nous force à lire l'image de droite à gauche.

Bon samedi

Ciao Malgo
bella foto, mi piace l'atmosfera e mi piace l'effetto delle luci artificiali.
Bello, anche se parziale, il riflesso di questo meraviglioso palazzo.
Buona domenica

Hi Malgo

You sure do have itchy feet! My train from Barcelona to Madrid went through Zaragoza and stopped there briefly. It looked like a nice town to visit. A superb blue hour shot with good sharpness and lovely reflections in the still water of the fountain. Tfs!

Ciao cara Malgo, fascinating nocturne shoot, excellent exposure, great perspective, splendid light and wonderful colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio Inviato

Hi Malgo
not sure how i missed this one in your gallery, its fantastic.
love the angle you took this photo at, it shows the size and strength of the building, and even with a hint of water reflections. but the best of all is that BLUE color! wow.
so beautiful color combinations and contrasts here. lovely shot. cheers

Czesc Malgorzata,
Pojechalas do Saragossy szukac manuskryptu? :)
Piekny kraj, tyle do zobaczenia!
Wspaniala fotografia. Bylas w przepieknym miejscu o wyjatkowej porze. Chmury przyjemnie sie ulozyly a swiatlo,jak to przy najlepszej blue hour, doskonale jest zbalansowane. Bardzo atrakcyjnie wyglada ten fiolet z pomaranczem.
Przyjemnej podrozy!
A czy w ramach zamalowywania mapy TE bedziesz tez w Andorze?
Pozdrowienia M

lovely texture of the sky and contrast with the golden buildings. excellent idea showing the corner and the reflections. I visited the basilica many years ago.
